Our Kenmore was not cleaning the upper dishes properly also. Obviously the water pressure delivered by the pump was restricted. Under the lower spinner and a larger plastic plate held on with 4 Torx screws and a smaller cover (2 more screws) over a small grinder cutter arm connected to the pump running around a circular metal perforated disk. This disk was clogged with the plastic from the dishwasher tabs - DON'T USE THEM!
Sadly the clog had also damaged plastic end of the pump that engaged with this spinning "cutter arm" so I had to modify the arm to make it fit again.

Once we stopped using the Tabs, all our problems disappeared.

My kenmore 17349 dishwasher is not cleaning properly. The door for the soap opens but all the soap doesn't get dispensed. 50% remains after the end of the cycle. We haven't changed soap and it used to dispense properly. It suggested to me the middle washarm was not spinning. As near as I can tell it is spinning.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

My Kenmore dishwasher, about 5 years old, is not cleaning well any more.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it
